Circulate San Diego is using Bike Theft Awareness Month to zero-in on the importance of bike locks! Unfortunately, some of our staff have had the terrible experience of having a bike stolen - even with it locked! Therefore, we don't want anyone else to ever experience this tragedy, and we want to help make bike riding (and locking) an enjoyable and care-free experience!
Below are some links to videos and resources to help you select the most dependable lock. We have also included a quick-guide resource that you can download and share. Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
